South America Automated Storage and Retrieval System Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Type and End Users

·5-min read

The automated storage and retrieval system market in SAM is expected to grow from US$ 200. 67 million in 2020 to US$ 364. 46 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7. 5% from 2021 to 2028.

New York, May 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "South America Automated Storage and Retrieval System Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Type and End Users" -
Structured management of redundant warehouse processes is also bolstering the growth of the industry. Storage and retrieval tasks were traditionally carried out manually at the workplace, which consumes more time and experience several errors in picking and placing the material. Human laborers involved in the storage and retrieval process at various warehouses and distribution centers find it quite tedious and challenging to perform tasks efficiently and end up consuming more time and resources. With enormously increased production quantities, the capabilities of laborers do not match with the current demands of higher processing rates and accuracies. Also, errors in the retrieval process hamper the progress of further operations in the supply chain and thus affects the performance of the entire production process. ASRS helps in increasing productivity by eliminating wasteful walking, searching, bending, and reaching time for improved and increased operator safety, and system throughput. Also, automation reduces human error and makes the storage and retrieval process accurate. Industries nowadays are experiencing enormous demands for automating the storage and retrieving activities, which can further increase the batch processing speeds of consumer goods and various packaged products. Further, automation of these process helps in reducing the cost of labor. Thus, the above-mentioned factors are fueling the demand for automated storage and retrieving systems.

Brazil has the largest number of COVID-19 cases, followed by Ecuador, Chile, Peru, and Argentina, amongst others.The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the closure of all economic activities across the region, to combat the spread of the virus.

With the closure of economic activities across the region, several industries such as automotive, retail, and electronics & semiconductor.Automotive production in South America has significantly decreased in 2020 owing to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Brazil’s automotive industry mainly caters to the domestic market but is a major exporter to Argentina. The outbreak of COVID-19 has led to the decline in exports of the country by 77%. Thus, the adverse impacts on the automotive industry across the country is directly negatively impacting the demand for automated storage and retrieval systems across the sector. Similarly, the retail sector of the country has observed a decline in revenue, whereas the e-commerce industry across the region is booming owing to outbreak of the pandemic. According to studies, the outbreak of COVID-19 has increased the Brazilian ecommerce in the first five months of 2020 by 57%.
